Jakarta in Pictures : Motor City

Jakarta is a city filled with two wheeled beasts and their wild riders. The increase in their populations can be blamed to the increase in fuel prices, the invasion of cheap motorcycles from china and korea, and the revolution in the credit methods of purchasing a motorcycle.
The population increase has given another problem to already problematic traffic of Jakarta : traffic, flood, crimes, problematic traffic lights, egoistic drivers, occasional gridlocks, and now the number spikes of motorcyle numbers.
They speed, they take sudden turn, they hit sidemirrors, they put a dent on cars.
They are the new emerging threat that if not controlled properly, Jakarta will be a much worse metropolis than it is now.

See it for yourself below.
